Earth and Fire on Display at Ceramics Exhibit at Café Muro

Tammy Watson ingeniously delves into the face

By Rosa Torres

An exhibit of ceramic art from artists of the Rosa Torres Studio collective will be on display at Café Muro beginning March 8.

In a collective ceramics studio frequented by five strong, independent women, a sense of rapport does not come easily. Individual behavior and sense of self can at times create stress and an unbalanced environment. Not here. Friendships evolve at the Rosa Torres Studio.

I am privileged to lead and coordinate a working clay studio that combines the elements of earth and fire with the talents of each of its members into a celebration of inspiration. The feminine energy that emanates from the artists on display in this exhibit—Elizabeth Scott; Lindsay Duval; Rosemari Martin; Ruth Probst; Tammy Watson; and me, Rosa Torres—is palpable and surrounded by generosity and friendship. How fortunate we are to have each other in and out of our atelier.

Elizabeth Scott returns yearly to San Miguel de Allende to further enhance her craft. Tireless and always willing to experiment, she has found her personal voice with a primitive style that reminds us of ancient pottery, rituals, and ceremony. Soft surfaces and contrasting colors highlight her evocative compositions.

Lindsay Duval enjoys the contemporary, modern chaotic nature of her pieces. With her own gifted sense of intuition, she creates sophisticated objets d’art which fully express her own imaginative yet mysterious ways of working her hands through the many elements of clay and glazes at her disposal.

Rosmari Martin is an architect by profession and a ceramist at heart. There is a more formal manner to her work, which helps create her conceptual yet risky clay explorations. Her artistry is organized, clear, and powerful. Her creations combine intellectual curiosity with a sensual and enjoyable finish.

Ruth Probst is a figurative artist with a touch of the unruly. Her experience is noted immediately as she successfully traverses the line of abstraction in her wall installations.

She explores the concepts of elegance, clarity, and skill in a potpourri of work that transcends the many forms of sculpture she has mastered.

Tammy Watson ingeniously delves into the representation of the face. She creates expressive faces filled with color and sentiment. She carves figures that appear to be smiling back at her and those fortunate enough to consider returning the smile.

Five wonderfully talented ceramic artists and I invite you to celebrate inspiration and talent together on Friday, March 8, at 6:30pm, at Cafe Muro, Cerrada de San Gabriel 1, colonia Obraje. The exhibit is on display until March 29.

Rosa Torres is a ceramicist and teacher. She runs Estudio de Cerámica los Camaleones.
